Silicon Alley

When Neil DeGrasse Tyson, influential astrophysicist, published, The Sky Is Not The Limit, coincidentally in response to Lil Wayne’s, The Sky is the Limit, and Michael Arrington, influential technologist, announced, “I don’t know a single black entrepreneur,” my personal and professional accounts had already confirmed these divergent statements. There is a shortage of African Americans, particularly women, working, or even seen, in the start-up scene. After an invitation, rejection, postponements, no response, acceptance, and eventual no show, where any arrival would have stood out, this is the prevailing environment of Silicon Alley. Please enjoy some photos from General Assembly's Demo Night, March 7, 2012.
